    A milestone of sorts...

    My first 1000.

    Looks like one of the Planet bike offerings. I'd say Protege 9...?

    OP, congrats! I just passed 2000 overall miles for the year on Tuesday and I know the feeling. Those nice round numbers are very nice milestones to reach.

    Congratulations! It's both cool and sad to know that you've cycled more miles than most North Americans will in their lifetime. I just hit 1000 commuter miles for 2010 yesterday.

    I recognize it as one of PB Protege series. Probably the 9; it looks about the same as mine but with a white case instead of the translucent case.

    This weekend I should roll over the 3000 mile mark for the year. A month behind my schedule for the year, but there were some early season medical setbacks.

    lol. Yeah, that's a good way of looking at it. My waistline is a thousand miles smaller (or one belt notch tighter), a co-worker figures I saved about $120 in gas and I've almost been run over only once. Congrats to you, too.

    Yes, the computer is a PB Protege 9. http://www.rei.com/product/786490 It's got all the possible functions I could ever use and it's accurate. Been very pleased with all of the PB junk I've purchased this year.
